Some laboratories have extended calibrations to high-energy photon and electron beams or are in the stage of developing the necessary techniques for these modalities. Furthermore, users can download the most final version of the Code of Practice to date, with corrections and updates inserted, from here.

High Energy Photons and Electron Beams. In the case of photon beams, the TPR was measured for 6 and 15 MV, iasa the profiles were determined in order to verify the flatness and symmetry of the beam: 27 entries can lead to computational errors.

Evaluation of codes of practice: IAEA TRS, TRS, TRS|INIS

These factors do not account differences between individual chambers of a particular type. In the case of N D,w,Qfor all plane parallel chambers, the differences are less than 0. Citation Export Print Permalink Translate. Results 1 – 1 of 1. The final draft of TRS can be downloaded from here as a compressed file pdf-zip. This new Code of Practice based on standards of absorbed dose to water has been developed for the dosimetry of radiotherapy beams when ionization chambers calibrated using these standards are available.

In other hand, the use of protocol with a more simple formalism reduces the possibility of errors. International Atomic Energy Agency. Get permanent URL for this record.

The energy parameters characterizing the electron and photon beams have been obtained from measured depth dose distributions carried 2777 by a plane parallel ionization chamber NACP. Standard Search Advanced Search. Differences in the absorbed dose determined by the three protocols are less than 0.

Standard Search Advanced Search. Reference Number Reference Number. Calibration of ionization chambers in terms of absorbed dose to water, would reduce the uncertainty in determining the absorbed dose to water in radiotherapy beams versus calibration in air in trw of air kerma.

Javascript must be enabled for narrowing. In this case, chamber dependent conversion factors are required to determine absorbed dose to water.

It is determined by two different protocols: The measurements have been performed in two linear accelerators Clinac C Varianwith electron beams of nominal energies between 6 and 20 MeV, corresponding to R 50 from 2. In creating this software, every effort has been made to create conditions that minimize input errors. An errata file for the printed version is also available here: Related Record Related Record. The calibration is performed in terms of absorbed dose to water Dw.

The IAEA assumes no responsibility for user-calculated results, or for the impact of such upon dose determination.
